Summer is nearly upon us, so it’s time to bring out those cute and modest dresses that have been waiting patiently in our closets. Dresses are perfect for keeping us cool in the hot weather, while still giving a stylish and feminine look. But sometimes, it can be challenging to figure out how to style them. In this post, we’re sharing a few different ways to style a summer dress with ease!
4 Ways to Stylize Modest Dresses for Summer
Here at Inherit, we have so many beautiful, modest dresses that are perfect for sunny days and warmer weather. Our Ashley Short Sleeve Stretch Waist Midi Dress is a favorite! But no matter which one you choose, you can style them differently with the right outerwear and footwear. Here are some tips:
1. Pair it with a Blazer
One of the great things about midi and maxi dresses is that you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. For a more formal look, you can pair them with a blazer in a neutral color such as black, gray, or beige. Just be sure to opt for a fitted blazer, as opposed to one that’s oversized. A fitted blazer will be more complementary to a flowing, loose dress. It’s sure to be the perfect look, whether you’re attending a meeting, going out on a dinner date with your husband, or having a night out with the girls.
2. Keep it Casual with a Denim Jacket
You really can’t go wrong with a denim jacket. It’s a classic and should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Denim jackets can be easily paired with modest dresses to give a more casual look while keeping warm on those chillier, breezy days in the summertime.
Our Ariel Medium Wash Denim Jacket is perfect this time of year because of its lighter wash. It gives off a summer feel and the distressed hem adds a unique touch. A denim jacket like this one is fantastic when paired with longer hemlines since it hugs your curves in a beautiful way. It’s the perfect look for a weekend brunch, a trip to the farmer’s market, or a casual date.
3. Add Layers with a Simple Cardigan
A cardigan is a great way to add some layers to your maxi dresses without sacrificing comfort. Since it’s summertime, just be sure to choose a cardigan in a lighter, airy fabric so you aren’t too warm. That means it’s time to put away those heavier, chunky knits until fall rolls back around!
One of the great things about cardigans is that they come in so many styles, which can completely change your look. Long, simple cardigans look great with maxi dresses because they aren't overpowering. Our Spring Essential Long + Soft Cardigan is a great option, by the way! Or if you want something with more detail, our Spring Essential Waffle Knit Cardigans are great, too.
4. Complete the Look with Footwear
Trying to find the right footwear to pair with more modest dresses can sometimes feel like a challenge, but it doesn’t have to. It just depends on the overall look you’re going for. If you need to look more professional, try pairing your maxi dresses with wedge heels. However, if it’s a casual day, go for a comfortable pair of sneakers or sandals instead. You can even try ballet flats for a feminine look. At the end of the day, it’s all about making the choice that will leave you feeling your best.
